The Lyrics

I don't care ‘bout Thursday’s food
And Monday’s far away too
Tuesday, I don't care about you
It's Friday, Let me shop

Saturday I fall apart
Sunday at noon I might start
Oh, Thursday provided some farts
It's Friday, Just Open!

Saturday waits
The products won’t be there too late
Black Friday never hesitates

I don't care if Friday sucks
Gonna spend a lot of bucks
Under products I’m now stuck
Black Friday, Help me out

Saturday ache in my head
Sunday I may stay in bed
On Monday eat some food instead
But Friday, it won’t end

The sales don’t wait
Friday after Thanksgiving date
Black Friday, an ominous fate

Dressed up on the shelves
You know it’s just retail hell
Trample with shoes ‘til the closing bell
Through it you might frown
Until good deals may be found
And you hear lots of shrieks
Customers run ‘round
Prices take a big dive
It's such a gorgeous sight
So we go while it's still during the night
You can never get enough
But what is this stuff
Black Friday
Why’d I buy?

Don’t disturb me Monday night
Tuesday, Wednesday, don’t feel right
Thursday I’ll still look a fright
Because of Last Friday

Wednesday might be hard to take
Store commotion, some stuff breaks
Then I’ll return it someday
The cycle never ends

Ok, this parody definitely didn't deserve 1's. All the hateful people who vote low because they disagree with some of an author's parodies should get off the site. How is it any kind of "revenge"? It just gets in the way of what us real parody authors are trying to do, which includes respecting others' parodies even if we disagree with them

I have every right to be irritated with unnecessary low votes from hateful people who don't like some of my parodies as is obviously happening here. This is a perfectly good parody and doesn't deserve it

John, I'm retired so I shop when I want. I usually make a day of it though because there are so many places to go out here in Cali. I never did Friday shopping nor weekend except for when I was growing up. I liked to shop on Mondays or Tuesdays when new media came out. Anyway, here's some fives to lift your spirits!

John, scoring all 1s is a symptom of generalized anger. That mental disorder is enabled by anonymity. This site is riddled with 1-bombers. Don't take it personally. In a larger sense, this misbehavior is a characteristic of the Internet. The time to really doubt your worth as a parodist is when you receive nothing but all 5s for every crappy parody you write, day after day.

Thanks Rob (this parody was about today in particular with all the sales) and Been There (Must be some disturbed people on this site and others, thanks for your advice)

It does sounded like the kind of nonsense AVGN went through when it comes to the receptions your parodies have been getting even though this one has nothing to do with politics. Its pretty amazing and not in a good way. With that said, good parody and I 5 it up to even it up a bit but...
John Lomain - November 26, 2016 - Report this comment
Thanks Max. Yeah, it's getting ridiculous. Seems these jerks are taking over the site to a large extent. Do we all have to walk on eggshells as to not offend anyone?

Ok, 9 people giving this non-political parody 1's. There is nothing in this parody to deserve that. This is ridiculous. You may disagree with me politically but that's no reason to give parodies 1's, especially non-political ones. Honestly, grow up and stop being so overly sensitive. To all the people who gave this a higher rating, I appreciate it

It doesn't necessarily mean 9 separate people giving you 1's. it could be one person giving you 9 separate 1's. It's easy enough to give another person multiple high or low scores, just like it's easy enough to pretend you are many different people offering criticisms

^ How do you do that, scoring multiple times? Wouldn't you need a different IP for each score? Maybe just a different browser. I just have one. If it's so easy what's the trick? Do you do that? Did Chuck overlook something? Sometimes I come back to a parody and I think I forgot to give a score and then I do and it doesn't register. I'm pretty sure making multiple comments under different names on a thread is allowed. What's with that? I'm going to try that out. I'll write another message with the name Lower Tech. I'll write IT WORKS.

All I have to do is refresh the page each time and I can send as many comments as I want under different names. Same computer and same browser. I can have an argument with myself if I want to!!! This is going to get me banned.

Interesting. Maybe it's less people than it seems to be. I've also come back to a parody and I think I forgot to give a score and then I do and it doesn't register, but maybe they're using different browsers as you said

John, last night I looked at some of my parodies from a few years ago. They got average scores of 2.1 or 3.2 — lots of all 1s. So as I read them I said to myself, "Man, these are damn good. These are LOL. How the hell did I come up with these ideas? The inspiration?" So I realized that my parodies stood the test of time with me. That was all that mattered. I have faith in myself. When I see all the garbage others submit, I know that their scores are the same garbage, probably multiplied by the number of browsers they have. If you write unfavorably about Trump or Jesus, however much it may be a joke and not your real point of view, the masked lynch mob will be after you forever more. F*ck them. Learn from the sincere comments, put in your work, and you'll be happy with yourself.

I liked this. Here's $555 to spend for Christmas!

What Been There said. It comes from the other side of the spectrum as well, and just as vicious. I used to respond but all that does is incite more comments of the same tenor which then makes this site look like a lunatic asylum. If you actually care about the integrity of this website, you cant win. And it's not like the fate of the Republic is at stake here. With the numbers we're currently drawing, our arguments couldn't sway the vote for Dogcatcher's Apprentice in B*mf#ck, Alaska

No one rewards crybabies. Shopping on Fridays is lame as it is. How about a parody of you changing your underwear next?
John Lomain - November 28, 2016 - Report this comment
As was obvious from an actual read of this, this was specifically about Black Friday. It was mentioned 4 times in the song. If anyone is a crybaby it's all these buttholes who don't like my political parodies so they give everything I write regardless of content 1's
